Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.


Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost - Sunday 24 August 2014
 

Welcome: While we were basking in beautiful music last week, the Archbishop of Canterbury was preaching in Holy Trinity Cathedral, Auckland. Among other things he is quoted as saying that cathedrals are ‘safe places to do risky things’ and have always been ‘the vanguard of the church in its mission and ministry in any community.’

These words of Archbishop Justin Welby are worth thinking about today as we hear the familiar story of a creative solution to a tricky problem – how to keep your child alive in the face of terrible danger. (You’ll have to read Exodus 1 to understand.)  In an Australian context we might think of a new Dream Time, as suggested in the anthem for Evensong tonight – God’s creative new beginnings forever bursting out wherever and whenever we care to notice.

On behalf of the Cathedral and wider community may I express our thanks to the generous underwriting, not to mention courage, by the Music Foundation in making the Fieri Consort’s visit possible.  As one reviewer said the Friday night concert may well go down as an “I was there” moment.  High praise indeed.

Welcome to all God’s people who worship today. Like Peter, may we recognise Jesus as the Christ, the Messiah, the Son of the Living God.
